The best presentation topics for students are those that match both the subject of the lesson and the student's abilities and interests according to presentationmagazine.com. When possible, students should select topics they are interested in or know something about to make research and preparation easier and more enjoyable.
Presentations that are for a grade in a class are often assigned with a grading rubric. The rubric tells students what the instructor expects to see in the presentation. Students should pick a topic that lets them meet all the requirements in the rubric. Other points to consider include the need for research and how accessible information about a topic is online or at the local library.
Ideas for good presentation topics in history include specific events or persons associated with particular classes. Science presentations might inform others about a specific theory, discovery or invention. Math presentations could concentrate on a historic mathematician or math theory.
